Democrats say we can’t have voter ID because it’s racist. Yet no Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel wants illegal aliens living in the city to have their own special IDs – to ensure they can receive welfare benefits without risk of deportation.
If this makes sense to you, you might be a liberal.
Rahm Emanuel Invents New ID to Ensure Illegals Get Their Welfare
Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel has moved forward with plans for a Chicago-only identification card specifically designed to ensure illegal aliens in the city can receive welfare benefits with minimal risk of repatriation.
The new program was unveiled at a Chicago City Council meeting on Wednesday, and it protects illegal aliens from federal oversight by not collecting any copies of identification documents presented when illegals apply for the identification card.
“Applicants bring in the documents to prove someone’s identity. They hand them over to specially trained individual who can review the documents and then hand them back … It’s going to capture just the name and the date of birth. It’s not going to capture an address,” a source close to those officials told the Chicago Sun-Times.
Emanuel, once President Barack Obama’s Chief of Staff, has been one of the loudest voices decrying Attorney General Jeff Sessions’s efforts to cut off federal funding for sanctuary cities like Chicago that refuse to cooperate in the enforcement of immigration laws.
Could a Democrat explain to us how voter IDs are racist but this isn’t?
